-- the presidency for four. looking at the states which have senate races up, i think the argument that obama will have to essentially extends the tax cuts as is come from of the 20 d's who are up, many of them in quite red states and the r's -- either very strong candidates because they all survived in 2008 and got elected against the obama landslide that year. whereas obama agreed to continue the tax cuts because he feared his own reelection, this time it is the democrats in the senate in a similar position obama was. >> thank you very much. i believe there are two narratives and it seems like both of the jim demint in their own way. but there is also the question of political psychology. and it is clear some republicans, some moderate republicans, some neo- conservatives, some people who were advisers to governor romney, that they do think that president obama got a mandate and suggest the republicans make major concessions. to what extent in your conversation with house republicans, to what extent this feeling is kind of common among rank and file members? >> the cheerful news from the ta

of president obama. after the election i think the real deal is our republican colleagues are disoriented and are in a tail spin since the election. they want to shoot, they don't know who to shoot or where the target should be so right now the target is on the back of susan rice. this has been very clear. i think you heard from my colleagues today specifically why there is no basis to the notion that ambassador rice would deliberately mislead the american public. you have to ask yourself what could she possible gain from doing this. what the republicans are accusing her of is completely inconsistent with her 20 plus year history as a diplomat. all of her accomplishments both academic and professional. i'm afraid my republican colleagues are trying to build a narrative in an attempt to derail a potential appointment to the state department, and an appoint. i might add that hasn't been proposed yet. we know over the last two years the number one goal of the republicans was to prevent the president from being re-elected. they failed t. message from the voters was for us to work together. we
